Coach claims booster paid Mississippi State Bulldogs recruit - ESPN
A football coach in Nashville says he witnessed a booster give Mississippi State freshman defensive back Will Redmond money, according to a radio interview.
This is yet another reason pay for play is a bad idea, we don't need it because the SEC, Big10, and PAC12 schools are already paying players in the form of "Booster Bonds". Need some tats? or a nice place to live. There's a sap (booster) for that!
Hows the old joke go? Mississippi State is probably the most ethical team in the SEC, and rank 111th nationally.

Questionable Playcall Of The Week: Not that it mattered, but going for it on 4th and 11 with a fake punt against Georgia, a team burned last year in the South Carolina game on a fake punt, might have been playing into the teeth of preparation. Also, South Carolina used giant attack human Melvin Ingram on theirs, and Mizzou put theirs in the hands of Trey Barrow, a fine athlete who is decidedly NOT a giant attack human.
Well if anyone is safe being named Melvin it would be Georgia's "Giant Attack Human"

"It's like a half of a bye week kind of deal. We don't have a game this Saturday which his weird. It's out of routine a little bit," said wide receiver Alex Neutz. "That's why we're here today and tomorrow, we're out here to try to keep our same routine, then we'll start our game week on Friday."
